Just across the I.O.P. connector in Isle of Palms, SC, is The Refuge a perfect cup of coffee or coffee drink. And fresh bagels, pastries, free wi-fi and a super friendly staff. We cruise over every morning on our scooters it’s a great meeting spot.
Ol’ Major Bacon Bourbon, is a well made product, at first sight you see a screw top and a wooden looking label. Under the cap it smells like bourbon with a hint of bacon. I admit I do want to taste it, is it more bourbon or more liqueur. At 35% or 70 Proof I am hoping it is more bourbon, with that pleasant hint of bacon.
Taste is enjoyable, you will have the sweet taste of bourbon that is all the flavors you get from aging in charred barrels yet you also get the taste of bacon which makes it just that much better. I like to drink bourbon neat (straight without ice) and this would be great after dinner. I must say I did try it in a cocktail the Good Ol’ Bacon Bloody Mary and I liked it so much I had made 3 or 4 of them.
